Bowie singing at Tina’s wedding

A new upload on Youtube has been brought to our attention by our good friend Kerstin. Last year, David Bowie attended Tina Turner’s wedding to Erwin Bach on the banks of lake Zurich in the newlywed couple Chateau Algonquin. There, he performed a rather impromptu performance of  ‘Tonight’ and the Elvis classic ‘And I love You So’.  The band however was not present, as you can tell it’s a backing track. You can feel that Bowie in the company of his dear wife Iman was having a great time!

Tina Turner Blog Interview: Bob Gruen

Back in November 2012, a new DVD entitled ‘Ike & Tina Turner On The Road: 1971-1972′ was released. The movie consists of footage shot by world-renowned rock photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya while touring together with the Ike & Tina Turner revue in the early 1970’s. Bob and Nadya developed a close relationship with the duo, and the DVD features many candid on stage and off stage moments.

We never had mich time to edit the video interview but today, it’s finally here! Enjoy!

In The Afterglow

Last week, a new commercial for Swisscom, a Swiss telecommunications provider, was released. Star of the promotional clip: Tina Turner. At first there was excitement: excitement about new footage of Tina looking youthful, energetic and happy. With Mrs Turner-Bach now officially retired, such a rare public appearance is usually cause for joy among fans. However, this initial excitement was partly overshadowed by disappointment. Disappointment mainly caused by a TV interview Tina gave to a Swiss news show in which she states that, in fact, she prefers to be inaccessible for her fans.
